Real 3D Shooting = Better Immersion
Tim Maupin, the stereographer in charge, feels that by filming an independent feature in 3D, they were able to be trendsetters and push the innovations of film making. “Once auto-stereo TV's are working really well, it will open the floodgates to 3D becoming mainstream. Right now it is still very much a niche market, but media will not stay flat forever...most media will eventually accommodate the fact that we have depth perception.”
